Fortnite gamers are still recovering from the loss of the pump shotgun in Season 9, and now Epic Games has taken away another beloved gun: the Suppressed SMG.
In Wednesday morning’s 9.10 Content Update patch notes, we found out about the introduction of a new gun: the Burst SMG. But as one gun enters, another leaves. The Suppressed Submachine Gun has been vaulted (it came in Common, Uncommon, Rare).
But instead of mourning the loss of one SMG, let’s take a look at what the new gun has to offer.

Other 9.10 Patch Notes
In addition to the weapons, there were a few other notable changes from this Content Update. Unfortunately for some, there were no map changes and the Drum Gun is still in the game. But if you like the different limited modes, then you’ll be excited about the following news.
Limited Time Mode Rotation
Solid Gold Duos
Gameplay featuring nothing but Legendary weapons. This mode has been used in the past.
Epic Games defines this as “Battle Royale gameplay with a limited set of weapons made up entirely of items that are vaulted in the standard modes.” This sounds very interesting, but hopefully Fortnite left the sword vaulted for this mode.
Close Encounters Squads
Another familiar mode. Epic Games defines this as “Close quarters combat with Shotguns & Jetpacks!”
Popular Fortnite streamer Tfue recently complained about the game’s new hot spots feature, calling them “broken.” So Epic Games saw the complaints and made a change adding the game is, “now spawning 4 hot spots each match, to ensure that there is at least one on each side more often. This is a temporary fix until we can set up functionality to force the same number on each side in big team modes.”
